Choice Hotels Announces Expansion of Cambria hotels & suites in Historic Savannah, Georgia
ROCKVILLE, Md. - Dec. 16, 2015 // PRNewswire // - Choice Hotels International, Inc. (NYSE: CHH), one of the world's largest hotel companies, is pleased to announce it has signed an agreement with franchise partner HOS Management, a leading hospitality and development company in the Southeast region, to develop a new Cambria hotel & suites in Savannah, Ga.
The new 103-room Cambria hotel & suites hotel will be located at 321 Montgomery St. in the heart of Savannah's historic district and steps away from world-class shopping, dining, museums and entertainment. HOS Management has hired Dawson Architects, an award-winning design and architecture firm based in Savannah, and expects to unveil the new hotel property in 2017.
"We continue to experience strong momentum in bringing the Cambria hotels & suites experience to new business and leisure travelers, and we're thrilled to announce our new hotel in Savannah," said Michael Murphy, senior vice president, upscale brands, Choice Hotels International. "This is another tremendous step forward for the Cambria brand – to be able to bring the fresh, upscale and affordable hotel offerings of Cambria to the heart of historic Savannah."
HOS Management, a family owned and operated business, has built a diverse portfolio of iconic hotels bringing brands from major national companies to the Southeast region, as well as their first independent boutique hotel brand, The Cotton Sail Hotel.
"For over 30 years, HOS has quietly reinvested in the Savannah community bringing reputable hotel brands to the area," Anil Patel, HOS founder and chief development officer. "We couldn't be more excited to partner with Choice Hotels and bring the Cambria brand to our beautiful, historic city which welcomed nearly 13 and a half million visitors in 2014 - breaking previous records. We look forward to providing hands-on, quality management of the Cambria hotel, as we do with all of our projects, and are eager to unveil this beautiful building to the city."
Designed as a business travel and leisure brand, all Cambria hotels are new-construction and feature a larger lobby to give guests a more social atmosphere; oversized rooms with flexible spaces; and the latest technology that allows guests to stay connected while they travel.
Like all Cambria hotels & suites, the Columbia property will feature other fine amenities such as a contemporary bistro, Social Circle™, serving a menu of local specialties created by Chef Michael DeMaria; liquor, wine, beer and freshly prepared grab-and-go gourmet salads and sandwiches; and a barista bar. This property will also boast off-street parking with valet service.
